A family in the Cleveland, Ohio, area lost something very valuable and Republic Services helped them find it. Recently the trash provider got a frantic call from a customer saying they had accidentally put $25,000 in cash in the trash and was hoping Republic could help them find it. The family was cleaning out Grandma’s house and took all the old food out of the refrigerator and freezer and threw it away. The grandma said, “There’s an envelope with $25,000 in there. Don’t lose it.” But it was too late, it was already in the trash. After getting the call from the family, Republic found the driver, thankfully before he got to the landfill. They had him stop at a recycling center to dump his load and about 10 Republic employees went through the trash by hand to find the envelope. The money was found and the family was thrilled with the help they got from Republic.
